TOMATO BASIL DIP

Here is another REALLY simple but great tasting recipe.  I found my Tomato Basil Dip recipe while I was pouring through my recipes getting ready for our “Appetizers to Die For” cooking class at The Lark Inn last weekend.  Not only is it easy to prepare and tastes good . . . it is also different.  It’s not the same old dip that everyone is used to having in some variation or another . . . it’s unique.  Bring your Tomato Basil Dip to a gathering and you’ll be the talk of the party!

Enough of my blabbing.  Let’s get down to business:

    I agree your own ingredients would be best – and in the summer I do use my own basil. I might have to think about making tomato paste. Alas I live in Kansas so my lemon tree did not make the cut when I moved from southern CA.
